Under Ksh. 15,000 is what defines the lower mid-range smartphone segment in Kenya.

It is in this segment that you find some of the best mid-range smartphones available on the Kenyan market.

Without any much further ado, here is the best a Ksh. 15,000 budget can get you in Kenya (July 2015 Edition).

Infinix Hot Note

The Infinix Hot Note is still the best Smartphone you can get with a Ksh. 15,000 budget. The smartphone has sold out on Jumia on several occasions and this authenticates its extreme popularity.

It is worthwhile to mention that the Hot Note now has a Pro version. The Infinix Hot Note Pro is awesome but unfortunately is yet to officially become available in Kenya.
